Pros: "Service was very good despite our one hour delay! Everyone was appropriately apologetic though."

Pros: "The people and the service were top notch. I fly on numerous carriers and overall AirNZ has been my favorite, hands down, primarily because of the helpful kind friendly staff."
Cons: "Disembarking down onto the tarmac, and being made to stand out there for about 5 minutes (supposedly for safety's sake) while another plane was being pushed out from the next gate, all the while breathing in the choking nauseating jet exhaust fumes while our own plane was idling."
Pros: "Flight good. Plane modern model with good entertainment system. Flight crew good."
Cons: "Check in automated systems referring most checking to supervisors. No manual system so supervisors overwhelmed. Chambolic 2 hours."
Pros: "Everything! It's Air NZ!"

Literally, every 15 minutes, someone in the flight crew was bumping my seat/bed - and waking me up. Never once got an apology. So pissed off I paid extra for business class when I would've gotten more sleep in a middle seat in coach."

Bags coming off the flight last made the customs line very long, after going through customs couldn't find where to check our bags on to Queenstown, finally found the the automatic check-in, too late only one person to help. So late had to walk to the domestic terimal, in a hurry. Finally found the check-in, checked all 3 bags, arrived in Queenstown, only two came in."
Pros: "When booking, we were unable to choose our seating hence we were not sitting together. At the airport we asked if there was a way they could put the three of us together. Air New Zealand was able to accommodate our request. It was a 12 hour flight. We were very grateful."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Pros: "Crew helpful, congenial."
Cons: "Anticipated more legroom based on seat chart diagram."
Pros: "Nothing in particular--it was a short flight. I did appreciate that the crew went ahead and turned on the entertainment system even though it was a short transit time (we were on a plane meant for trans-Pacific travel--only reason it was available in the first place)."
Cons: "No complaints here."
Cons: "We were booked on a 7 a.m. flight Wednesday morning. We arrived from Syndney the night before and wanted to make sure we were set for the early morning flight so went to an Air NZ information desk to get boarding pass. The agent printed out an e-ticket and said we were good to go. We arrived an hour and a half early to the gate, with our carry on bags as we have done all over the world. We heard an announcement about bags needing to be checked and assumed ours would be gate checked if needed (as anywhere else in the world). The gate agent didn't arrive til 20 minutes before the flight and told us we DIDN'T have a boarding pass and needed to return to the ticket agent and check our bags. By the time we ran back to the ticket agent we were told it was too late to check our bags. We had to pay $100 more a piece to fly LATER through Christ Church. We were on our way to meet our kids for vacation and ended up losing a day and $200 additional dollars because we were given inaccurate information by the Air New Zealand info desk."
Pros: "The service was great and the seats had a lot of leg room. Very easy to check in online and drop bags at the airport."
Cons: "The wine was delicious and I wanted more"
Pros: "Generally like the airline, and Auckland airport. The crew onboard was great, but the guy that helped me check in, and the guy that took my money for the extra rad fee were rude and bad with communicating with both me and each other. Seemed a bit clueless really."
Cons: "That I got charged $140 extra to check a bag even though it all fit under my allowed weight. Very unhappy about that."
Pros: "The Boarding Emirates at Logan Airport is a nightmare. The staff are unhelpful, and take long time to process Transiting passengers. The Desk is understaffed, and the staff is rude."
Cons: "The flight has enough crew on board, but the staff usually stand together in the galley and keep gossiping, instead of going around once in a while and check on passengers. It's a long flight and crews change but the passengers don't."
Pros: "Overall good experience, could have been better if we had got seats of our choice."
Cons: "If we could have got seats of our choice."
Pros: "First time we flew on business on international (we upgraded)."
Cons: "I haven’t received my bag yet. It’s been 4 days"
Pros: "Staff helpful and courteous under difficult conditions."
Cons: "People were allowed wheel chairs without a doctor'snote. 59 wheel chairs passengers is ridiculous. Make it a requirement wheel chair assistance required a doctor's note. And check hand luggage weight. Many bags excceeded the limit."
Cons: "The airline’s insistence on keeping a passenger limited to only one carry on bag and then weighing to make sure that each carry on item was only 7 kilos was just plain ridiculous."
Pros: "Professionalism of flight crew. Movie & entertainment selection. Overall cleanliness of aircraft."
Cons: "Ground crew was not well organized. Lacked attention and professionalism. Bad way to start a flight."
Cons: "Request to allot passage seat on 30th Nov"
Pros: "I recently booked a flight on Qatar first, to Ko Samui, Thailand. When I got on the plane, I asked the flight attendant to please be careful when he pushed the cart down the aisle because the last time I flew, the flight attendant smashed the cart into my elbow and drew blood. The flight attendant laughed at me, so I told him, calmly, that if it happened again, I would sue the airline. He didn't like that, and so for the next ten minutes he sent three different flight attendants over to ask me crazy questions like, "Do you have anything you would like to tell us?" I have no idea what this was about. Eventually, I was told to get off the plane, which ended up costing me over $1,500 in transportation, hotel, and new flight (on Emirates) fees. It was and still is a nightmare because my vacation has been ruined due to having no money. I'm a master's-degree-holding English teacher of 11 years with no history of ever having been asked to get off of a plane for any reason, and no, I was not drunk because while waiting for my luggage to be returned, had a conversation with three Boston airport police officers who did not arrest me or even understand why I had been kicked off of my flight. Nor did I speak a single profane word to the Qatar flight attendants or security, and of course, I did not use violence or resist when I was told to get off the plane. Unlike Qatar's staff, the Boston police officers were very polite and understanding. Emirates, on the other hand, was a completely different story. They were great. The staff was friendly, and when I was sleeping, they didn't send their staff over to harass me. I have flown on Emirates, Qatar, and Ethihad many times, and I truly don't understand why Qatar's staff have been instructed by their managers that it is okay to lose long-time customers and kick professional teachers off of their planes just because they think I wasn't perfectly sweet and nice to them all the time. I am an American, and in my country we have freedom of expression and speech, as long as that speech does not indicate violent intentions or use profanity or insults. Basically, I felt as though I was in a country with no rights to free speech at all. Presently I am having my lawyer work up legal documents for Qatar to get my money back and to reimburse me for travel and hotel expenses, as well as having to take two extra days off of work to reschedule my flight. I truly believe in the transparency of the travel industry through using comments like those I am making you readers aware of right now, and I assume you will benefit from this rhetorical question/advice: Emirates and Ethihad are sometimes a little more expensive than Qatar on certain flights, but is it really worth it to risk having Qatar take your money and make you miss your flight for no reason? Is it acceptable for an airline operating in the USA to deprive Americans of their right to express concern to the flight attendants on their plane?"
Pros: "The service provided by the crew is top notch. No one goes hungry on Emirates."
Cons: "The seat pitch is getting tight."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about Emirates. No complaints. Nice plane and stewardess."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was extremely rude. She passed over me several times like I wasn't sitting in the most uncomfortable seat. In the middle. She didn't want to give me water, I had to ask if I could have some water. TSA held me up, I almost missed my flight had to be rushed on and no place to put my things so I had to sit squashed in the middle seat with all my bags for a 12 hour flight. I won't EVER go through Boston AGAIN. I won't ever chose Emirates for that long flight again, if I can help it. The WORST!!"
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Boarding is complicated . They didn't allow cabin baggage and laptop bag together. Only 1 is allowed"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly. And, the amenities offered are superb."
Cons: "I did not get the seats I selected when booking"
Cons: "Nothing everything is good"
Pros: "All flight attendants dressed and acted in a VERY professional manner. Always polite and helpful. Lots of smiles. Loved the eye mask, ear plugs, socks and toothbrush. Food was much better than most flights on other airlines."
Cons: "On such a long flight I wish my seat would have gone back just a little more. Might have been easier to sleep. Would have liked to have a newer selection of movies."
Pros: "Value for money. Courteous, efficient, and pragmatic. Recycled blankets and headphones."
Cons: "Bathroom door broken I was locked inside for several minutes"
Pros: "Crew were very nice"
Cons: "Seat cushions are horrible There is no padding. 'All the chairs dirty too. Decor was very old"
Pros: "Crew went out of their way to be friendly"
Pros: "The amenities in Business Class were excellent - the seat was luxurious and you could actually catch some sleep. The food was gourmet and the staff was very attentive. They made a small mistake and forgot to serve me dessert but the mistake was remedied immediately when I informed them of the slip up."
Cons: "I paid a LOT of money for a Business Class seat and yet I was never notified that my flight was going to be delayed in departing by 12+ hours until after I arrived at the airport. According the the flight crew, they were notified at 9am that morning and the airline had my phone number and email, yet I arrived at the airport at 8pm because I was never notified! I spent $50 to take a taxi to the airport and now I had a 10am departure the following morning! I was given no compensation for this massive issue. Just "sorry, come back tomorrow!" I was very upset! My choices were either take ANOTHER $50 taxi home that night and then another $50 taxi back in the morning or get a $150 hotel room at the airport. So glad I paid THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS for my Business Class seat (a big spend for me as I've never flown Business Class before but felt like a special treat for a special occasion). WTF, Emirates!"
Cons: "Seats elbow room was insufficient."
Pros: "not so many people in my flight, the crew were so nice and very helpful."
Cons: "first meal was bad,I requested low fat meal and they gave me the beef something which was meh!"
Pros: "Food and service are excellent"
Pros: "Cosmetics kit is of high quality. Airport pick up and drop off."
Cons: "Seats are not wide enough and uncomfortable for business class. Not many food options. TV remote is not intuitive. When seat is turned into bed, it is not 100% flat, and has some elevation. Cannot comfortably speak with co-passenger due to privacy board that doesn't come down fully. TV positioning is not ergonomical and co-passenger's TV screen is too bright when trying to sleep."
Pros: "Lovely online and phone customer service reps. Comfy flight with good entertainment (tv)."
Cons: "My baggage (x3) was delayed 3 days, which was frustrating to say the least. I received no apology email or flight discount/refund/coupon, etc."
Pros: "Free movies!!! Blanket and pillow provided. Also the crew was very attentive."
Cons: "Switching of terminals to Fly Dubai"
Cons: "Had a tough time to get a replacement ticket."
Cons: "Despite ordering a vegetarian Oriental meal, I was given a meat dish in my meal!"
Pros: "Lots of food"
Pros: "They got us there safely"
Cons: "We did not get the seating booked online The room in the terminal at the boarding gate was extremely small and inadequate. It created much anxiety and discomfort among the passengers. Some were disgruntled."
Pros: "Crew took a post card photo of whole family .. Provided toys ..books for kids .. Small things but made difference.. Crew were nice and fast"
Cons: "Food was not good chicken smelled .. Taste not good"
Pros: "There were a lot of different movies to watch. Also, the food was real good."
Pros: "Service was excellent. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Touch screen at seat was not responsive. Took many presses on the screen to get it to respond."
Pros: "This is my third time flying with Emirates and I can not say enough positive things. I only wish my husband was able to fly with them."
Cons: "No organization, had trouble in check in. On Boston airport we had to do passport check there was a long queue. Nobody was answering any questions. I think direct flights from Emirates are outstanding but the code share with Jet Blue did not work for me. For food there was Hindu meal option which did not specify veg or non veg we were served lamb but FYI Hindu meal means no beef and could be veg or non veg which does not make sense. Emirates should clarify that. So we ate nothing on our flight to Dubai."
Pros: "My flight was very comfortable, and the staff was very attentive."
Cons: "I was not able to choose my seat for this flight"
Pros: "The baggage allowance, excess baggage rules are some of the most generous rules. The service of the people on board is great I general and the aircrafts are impeccable."
Cons: "The first leg of Hyderabad to Dubai was about 3.5 hours. The airhostesses must have been tired from another long haul prior to the HYD-DBX leg. A couple of them were a little less than charming to some of the passengers. Many of the people from Indian subcontinent don't use the magic words - thank you and please. So, it could come out likes bit rude but a curt answer in stead of yelling would have sufficed. My flight was from EWR to HYD with stopovers at BOS and DBX. A long wait at Dubai can be understood and expected. But a 7 hour layover at Boston was a killer. If Emirates tied up with any other carrier other than jet blue, this could have been avoided. Even otherwise, after a 20+ hour journey, another 7+ hour waiting was a killer. Please change it to make the journey shorter"
Pros: "Entertainment and food"
Pros: "Great food. Decent comfort but only because the plane was pretty empty. Crew was great but they kept disappearing. People need to sleep, sure, but I felt a little abandoned at times. Good selection for movies and tv."
Cons: "Boston Logan airport was a mess. There were at least 15 people working at the gate, fooling around. Meanwhile we were all sitting there waiting and waiting and waiting to board. It was a bit rude."
Pros: "Very attentive, patient, helpful and friendly on-board crew Food was good In-flight entertainment options"
Cons: "understaffed counter at the gate. People waited in line for as long as 45 minutes for passport check Audio quality of airline provided headsets was poor. Some would not work. Others did not play audio on both left and right sides"
Pros: "Food was delicious. Lots of free movies. There was even a ton of entertainment options I didn't try, so I am sure there is something for everyone."
Cons: "The headphones jack required the two prong kind, which I did not have. But they provide headphones free, so it wasn't that big of a deal."
Pros: "Probably the most serene and comfortable public transportation experience I've ever had. And have had a lot of really miserable experiences traveling so this really stood out. The variety of entertainment options, the free alcohol, pleasant staff, clean bathroom, plus no one was sitting next to me which was really awesome, although I suppose not really Emirate's doing. A+++++ will most definitely take Emirates again"
Pros: "Quick, efficient and on our way. Crew were nice."
Cons: "Flight Attendants again just zoom by with the trash bag and my hands were full of the trash and she didn't even notice. So I left on the empty aisle seat next to me. I went to sleep and when I woke up 30 mins later the trash was still sitting on the seat next to me."
Pros: "Frequency of service and inflight entertainment options."
Cons: "All the kids. Too many. Too many crying babies. It was like a day care in our section. I've never seen anything like it. Also, the ICE interface is a little confusing. And the touch screen a little weak."
Pros: "the crew is the best thing about this airline. they are professional, helpful and seem to like their jobs - excellent across the boards flight times to and from Dubai - excellent from boston I will likely use this service again"
Cons: "for all the hype about how this airline is a "luxury" class airline their seats in economy were the same as everyone else's. Not every comfortable for long halls. They could have a premium economy like British Airways does and I bet it would be popular. The business class was also sub-par. We sat behind it and I could see that they did not even go to flat beds-- Turkish airlines (I hate to say this) was far better. for the cost of a business class ticket $4500 - it should be a lot better) also food quality was ok - not great entertainment - not a huge variety for those who just want something mindless - the movies were ok not great."
Pros: "Need Halal food"
Cons: "Need more Halal food"
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Forced to check in carry on, 1 hour to get it at bagage claim."
Cons: "Flight was super delayed scheduled to leave at 6:30 left at almost 9. Small updates with not much information. Entertainment system not functioning. Had to get a tow to the gate after landing??"
Pros: "I like that the flight got me to where I needed to go."
Cons: "Lack of legroom and $8 to watch TV seems ridiculous. JetBlue has free TV and better legroom. Probably won't fly United again."
Pros: "Simple boarding process, fantastic friendly staff and smooth ride!"
Pros: "Entertainment free and plenty of choices"
Cons: "Not even any free snacks, seats do not recline much at all"
Pros: "Gate attendant very helpful in Boston. Flights went well."
Cons: "The gate layout very confusing and too crowded w/so many close together in semi Circle fashion. Hard for people to line up or even see where they should be."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport only to find out that they had instituted a no carry on policy for basic economy and that I'd have to check my bag. They acknowledged that they had not informed me of this but that I'd still have to pay. The flight was delayed and the crew was extremely rude through out the flight, to top it off the in flight entertainment and wifi didn't work and the seat was incredibly uncomfortable"
Pros: "awesome, caring staff"
Cons: "Flight was delay for more than 45 minutes"
Cons: "Only sent a code for bad wifi on one of two trips. I wish united airlines would step up their game. At least I didn't get dragged off."
Cons: "United sucks soooooo bad"
Cons: "I was there on time but was told my travel information was not on found even though I had the email confirmation and I lost all the money I paid."
Pros: "I loved being in economy plus! The meal was a wonderful surprise and after my tv screen was reset, I enjoyed 2 movies. Nice staff and service."
Cons: "Having to go to the back of the plane for the bathroom."
Cons: "Delays, very bad customer service"
Pros: "My flight was cancelled for bad weather. It was the ONLY FLIGHT going to or from Chicago cancelled. Typical United. Never flying United again."
Pros: "I liked that the air time was short and smooth (bos to sf)."
Cons: "We waited in security line for an hour. The plane was delayed for an hour for cleaning purposes. There was a plane at our gate when we landed. Ill avoid United for future flight purchases."
Pros: "Not much. Staff were reasonably pleasant. Boarding process is horrible."
Cons: "United is still flying ancient 757s. Broken tray tables, lights no working in the lavatory. Treating people like cattle with the 1,2,3,4 lanes is unpleasant and demeaning. Everything is getting cheaper and cheaper."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I've never had a good experience w in flight entertainment on united. Compared to other airlines it is simply a big step behind"
Pros: "The concern of the flight attendant when she accidentally kicked my foot in an aircast. It was my fault because I had my foot in the aisle trying to stretch out a bit."
Cons: "The inability to access the entertainment through the app. I received the message that it was temporarily unavailable. I was disappointed as I wanted to watch a movie."
Pros: "New plane, great service."
Cons: "The hot meal was gross, but that's too be expected these days. It was nice to even get one, honestly. In flight wifi didn't work but the crew was great about helping us get in touch with customer service about it."
Pros: "at security line the man was friendly and directed me to correct personnel when flight delayed so i could fly standby and not miss my ride at other end. then when i returned to go through security he helped get me in correct line so i could clear in tine all the while friendly and cheerful."
Cons: "Inspire of making it clear all through booking, check-in and seat assignment, I was assigned a seat in an emergency exit. I told crew before I boarded that I could not open the emergency exit at assigned seat, due to an injury. I had to board almost last waiting for them to find someone who would take that seat. Then they put me in a non-reclining seat. I was given the wrong free beverage and the crew never came back. So I had nothing to drink on a 4+ hour long flight."
Cons: "The delay in my flight and that nothing was done to compensate that my entire schedule had to be redone to meet the needs of late air crafts, not enough fule and cargo doors not being able to shut."
Pros: "Free movies on the plane, because of errors."
Cons: "4 hour delays both ways. We missed our connection flight due to delays on the way home. That connection was the last flight out of that airport home. We ended up having to sleep in the airport overnight, because United wouldn't pay to put us in a hotel even though the delay was because of a mechanical error on the plane. Our 5 hour flight turned into a big ordeal."
Pros: "We boarded very quickly. Take off and landing were immediate. I wasn't interrupted as I slept."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Ordinarily, a little over an hour isn't bad, but we ended up landing at 1:30 in the morning, local time. I called United expressing concern about the arrival time when I was first notified of the delay and all I was told was "I'm sorry for the inconvenience." I learned later that there was an earlier flight I could have tried to get on."
Cons: "Took 3 days to get home got stuck in a hotel pregant stuck between airport and planes for 2 days makes me never want to fly again horrible experience"
Pros: "The courteous agent at the gate"
Cons: "Not being able to get a flight over 20 hours later!"
Pros: "I liked that it was a direct flight"
Cons: "Small plane, entertainment was very poor- no television and poor wifi connection. Not much of a selection with the food"
Cons: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "I liked that we were 15 minutes early. I also liked that the stewardess gave me a bag of chips to compensate me."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone took my bag of expensive Airport snacks and threw them away while I was asleep. Who reaches under people's legs!"
Cons: "Rude crew, departed three hours late, and not permitted to bring carry-on luggage. Awful."
Cons: "They had flight delay issues and WE got pushed onto a next day flight but WE had to pay for our hotel when it was their planes delayed!"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, staff were okay."
Cons: "No entertainment, ran out of orange juice, cold and uncomfortable, old aircraft."
Pros: "Took off late but landed on time"
Cons: "Packed in like sardines. Hot on board."
Cons: "Our plane was constantly moved around prior to boarding and it was 2 hours late."
Pros: "I didn't not make to my flight on time because I didn't know I need yo check in a day ahead but luckily there was another flight leaving over an hour and a staff was able change the flight for me without charging a fee. that was very nice. My seat was on three roll seats and there was another person was same roll and we share other seat and strength our legs."
Cons: "In flight movies did not work."
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Kinda bumpy"
Pros: "Smooth and early."
Cons: "1. Comfort: the headrest on these seats is so uncomfortable! It just props your head forward and causes a lot of neck strain. For most short haul flights, this is not a big deal, but it really makes for an unpleasant journey on the cross-country flights. Also, the four-seat middle section is so poorly designed. There is no way to store personal items under seats without invading the space of your neighbor because the metal frame supporting the row of seats doesn't match with the seats themselves. 2. Entertainment: United could not support continuous streaming of movies/TV shows for every passenger. My movie paused and froze so frequently that I gave up on finishing it and then felt like I had wasted my time. The speed and reliability reminded me of trying to watch movies on a dialup connection. It would be so much better to just have the TV screens built into the seats. All in all, United got a bad batch of planes and should try to take this into consideration when working with Boeing/Airbus on the next order."
Pros: "I originally self checked in for my delayed flight from Boston to Newark, but forgot to add TSA pre check. I went to ask an agent if she could add it, which she very kindly did. She also offered and put me on an earlier flight, which made my day! Thank you!"
Pros: "How they captain kept us informed and updated frequently. About flight, weather, turbulence. Overall great flight, smooth, free entertainment."
Cons: "I thought the crew was rude and unattentive."
Pros: "It was a particularly stormy, windy night with lightning delaying our flight, however, once we were granted permission to fly, the pilots managed a safe flight with little turbulence once away from the storm."
Cons: "The seats, were the nightmare! If you're 5'8" or taller, don't plan to cross your legs for the flight duration!"
Cons: "The last 5 times I have flown united I have either been cancelled or delayed to the point that I miss my connecting flight aND get to the destination. 24 hours later I will NEVER book a united flight again"
Pros: "Willing to drive to Charlottesville. Difficulty finding one way rental"
Pros: "No complaints whatsoever."
